Chelsea are now reportedly ready to sign up Christian Pulisic for £70m as Borussia Dortmund are ready to sell.
The gifted 20-year old American has reportedly caught the attentions of Blues boss Maurizio Sarri over the last few weeks with the Italian looking to bolster his attack in the coming transfer window, and mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title.
Sarri is looking to add a bit more width and creativity to the attack, despite having the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Alvaro Morata, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic all pulling the strings at Stamford bridge, and reportedly sees the talented American as an idea signing.
And after Hazard admitted that ‘he could leave’ at the end of the season, the Daily Mirror website has claimed that Sarri is now ready to sanction a £70 million deal to bring the American to the Premier League.
Pulisic has played 13 games for Dortmund this season, and despite our interest in a possible deal, the Germans are unwilling to let the exciting 20-year old leave half way through the season when they have a great chance to win the League and we have to wait until the summer to try and convicne Dortmund to let him go.
But the report goes on to say that Dortmund are now ready to cash in on Pulisic at the end of the season, as they believe they can cope with his potential loss after the emergence of Englishman Jadon Sancho.
Pulisic has recently announced he will hold talks with the Germans about his future when the January transfer window opens up in just a few weeks time.
“I’m still focused on Dortmund. We are doing great this season,” Pulisic told NBC Sports.
“Once the break comes [in January], that is always when I will have to discuss with Dortmund and see about my future.”
